“The episode actually trod a fine line between sentimentality and ridicule, and frequently went flying over it.” Read on for the verdict on last night’s TV.

The Undateables, C4

“The episode actually trod a fine line between sentimentality and ridicule, and frequently went flying over it.”
Andrew Billen, The Times

“I know that by the end of the episode, you see those involved as more than their labels. But you’re also left with an uncomfortable feeling that there must be a better way to achieve that end.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

“It left implicit the questions raised about intra-disability prejudice, the manifold problems of exposing yourself emotionally when you are already, in many ways, more vulnerable than average. Beautifully done.”
Lucy Mangan, The Guardian

Horizon: The Hunt for Artificial Intelligence, BBC2

“[Horizon] blew your mind in the first few minutes and thereafter just kept pounding the fragments into smithereens.”
Lucy Mangan, The Guardian

“I’ve learnt one thing over the season of the science programme, when Horizon has anything to do with humans it’s gripping. When it’s about space, time or molecules it makes us feel extremely thick.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express

Smugglers Special, ITV1

“Two years’ filming yielded a nondescript bunch of Algerian criminals and some equally nondescript coppers. This is the trouble with so many police documentaries. The cops are too professional to emote.”
Andrew Billen, The Times

Rory McGrath’s Pub Dig, Channel 5

“The success of TV archaeology depends more or less entirely on the quality of the presenter. Tony Robinson is a master at it and McGrath isn’t far behind.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express
